These rango Rango keshavan Fob's have always ranked up high in my book. Some of the fuller sounding mics I wonder why they weren't adoped more by other tapers.

beautiful show

One of the best of '83. Can't go wrong with five-fifteen. I only wish I could have been there. Lose yourself as you listen. Pure Art.

Probably the best run of all the Greeks. Jerry's solos in Brown Eyed and Althea are so smokin'. Wow were some heads lucky to have made it to the Greeks,Saratoga and then Merriweather in 1983. That is my favorite 3 venue bang out in any year. Looking back now this would of been the best run to have been at on any tour. Its so sick these shows at those killer venues during these times. Both the band and the scene were so ripe for the pickin.

Indeed the reviewers previous to me here have noted all the great moments of the show and it was all that good. It was a beautiful sunny day and the anticipation that we would get the newly outed "Help On the Way/Slipknot!" was permeating the crowd. The highlight definitely was when Bob Weir surprised Mr. Healy with a birthday rendition before the 2nd set. Poor Dan got really upset....why? Poor Dan had a "birthday" gram of coke in his lap and the whole thing spilled......."Help On the Way"........

I love this second set...Help Slipknot Franklins is one of my personal favorite versions...Samson and Delilah features some fiery picking from Jerry...He's Gone is played at that perfect Dead groove tempo...the drums space is definitely worth a listen...a decent Truckin' emerges post space, but this winds into one of the best Stella Blues of the 80s...this version is fully developed and features a beautiful and perfect Garcia solo during the middle break...Jerry also treats us to an excellent closing solo that peaks with some classic fanning on the Tiger...the closing string of tunes are well played...

Subject: Happy Birthday Dan Healy !
It should be noted not only about the effects Healy was doing as they wished him well, before Help on the Way, (Even though the Help/Slip's they did this year with one or two exceptions weren't as long and developed as back in '76-'77, we were still quite happy to be seeing that again); but furthermore, John Chipollina joined at the end ! This was probably, but I have to double check; his last appearance with Grateful Dead ! I was lucky enough to have seen almost all of his appearances.
During his appearance wasn't the first in fact, the 5th(?) time starting in New York somewhere, with one(?) lone exception, a year or two before, after perhaps as long as 1971; that they returned to the trend which you'll know remained more or less from this tour forward, that of closing with Not Fade Away !
Besides these facts, it was still a pretty solid show. The first set was fun with Brown Eyed Women and Looks like Rain being quite good ! I'll never forget for example my buddy Paul Sepalla nudging me to tell me that they'd been improvising for ~18 mins. after He's Gone. In addition to Chipollina, I was also lucky enough to see almost all of Flora Purim and Airto Morera's appearances as well, who contributed to this setion !
Of course, there are many shows when these tunes, jams and the following shined; yet having seen many, although I still wouldn't say the following were my most favorite, nevertheless the Stella Blue out of Truckin' was quite well developed ! Moreover, the Throwin' Stones was still in it's relatively early stage of evolution !
